An ENDO Apparel customer post selfie, and mid handshake with Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson.

People told me they saw the shirt on CNN and Fox too, but I don’t have links to any of those videos or pictures.  There are a lot of cameras and microphones in both those pictures so I wouldn’t be surprised if the shirt was shown more places.

Any of you actual lawyers or armchair lawyers know if I can legally put “As seen on *cnn logo* *aljazeera logo* *business insider logo* *fox logo*” etc… on my sites to boost my ego?  The list is getting quite long, with multiples on lots of them too… or is this considered a NO FLEX ZONE?  Let me know in the comments.

You could…carefully…and generally with permission, as long as you aren’t diluting or damaging the trademarks, but you’d have to make it clear that each logo is a registered trademark of the respective organization, you are in no way affiliated, and they in no way promote your product. And even then…expect cease and desist letters and maybe lawsuits.*

Best practice would be to use “As seen on TV,” which is currently in the public domain.*

Sorry to be a buzzkill but that doesn’t look like a 1911 to me.

It’s not a 1911. The version you see is now discontinued. I sell the 1911 version at ENDOapparel.com still though!
